02/24 A brief history of film sound A. Early Sounds: Nickelodeon were the first movie theaters First used an orchestra during the projection Cinema was conceived both in terms of image and sounds Two major difficulties: synchronization and amplification Not fully solved until the Warner Brother released a series of short sounds films Considered most appropriate for short periods before the film Production of feature films with some sounds Ex: warner bros. Jazz Singer Remembered as the first talking film, but not true “you ain’t heard nothing yet” Mostly a silent film with intertitles with singing Sounds as a novelty Western Electric soundondisk projector: used my warner bros. Electronically connected to the projector Eventually studios went with optical sound track: soundonfilm At first received critical remarks due to the change in movies Charlie Chaplin refused to make sound films Gangsters films: what came out of using sounds in movies Very distinctive sound effects Gun shots Convey social elements Convey extremely violent scenes Components of the soundtrack A. Dialogue/speech Conveys the story and the back story Dialogue overlap: helps to smooth over a cut Match on action: action is matched B. Music Most common to support the image and mood that coincides the image Also used to make an ironic remark Punch particular moment Unexpected verge of sound: horror films Spikes/bus: common in horror films Used to falsely lead the audience Ex: scream Horror often aims for surprise C. Sounds effects Diegetic noises that are needed to fill out a story D. Silence Used for a narrative point Brings life to lifeless places Dimensions of film sound A. Rhythm B. Fidelity C. Space Diegetic vs nondiegetic Non: Not part of the world in which the character lives A narrator who does not exist in the story world: nondiegetic Not part of the story Onscreen vs offscreen: if the sound is diegetic Offscreen: construct the place without seeing it External vs internal: of the sound is diegetic Subjective sound: memory/ mental event: flashbacks, dreams, hallucinations Character imagines the sounds Perceptual subjectivity with sound: see and hear as the character would see and hear them D. Time Simultaneous vs nonsimultaneous: come from the same time or from an earlier or a later time Voice over narrative: nonsimultaneous: image and time come from a different time of the story Sound bridge: sounds from one scene can cut into another or the other can start before the cut Common way of changing scenes
